Albert Aylor's glasses on one of his pocket notebooks
filled with his woodworker's notes


Aylor created a wide range of jigs for steam-bending chair parts.  Here are some examples.   Jig "A" was used to bend rear uprights for rocking chairs.   Jig "B" is a hefty jig used to bend a scroll arm for a chair.  Jig "C" was used to bend thin slats for a slat-back chair.  Item "D" is a partially-completed prototype of a carving done by Aylor's wife presumably in anticipation of using it on future furniture projects.

Aylor created a wide range of patterns that he used to make
his furniture.  Here is one such large pattern  for a headboard
held against the finished piece.

Additional examples of Aylor's large collection of patterns.  
Here are patterns or chair back tops.

Albert Aylor urging his completion of a chair order

On the lighter side, here is what appears to be a "Penny Bank" made
by Aylor for his children.  The craftsmanship is up to his usual
standards -including using several different woods.  And the fact that
the bank is sealed makes whatever savings went in "stay put."
